  1. I found that post interesting post as well. I really don’t have a good understanding of how well it actually works in Iowa and certainly there are both cultural and geographic differences – a brief glance at a map will tell you that Iowa lends itself much easier to simple regular shaped districts the Wisconsin. That said, it sure hits you over the head with common sense. I’d have no problem at all with chopping the state up into as uniform and regular of shaped districts as possible & let the chips fall where they may.

    Our legislature has made a mess of it time after time. After having (or being forced) to have the courts decide, this time around the Republicans did everything they could to prevent it from being decided by the courts…only guaranteeing that their methods would do just the opposite.

    In a state where we should have part time legislators – but they could never admit to not being as important as they think they are – it’s hard to imagine a real, structural solution to the problem that makes it less political.

  2. If you look at the previous districts, many had lots of straight lines. We are a fairly rural state, after all.

    That Recess. Too reasonable. No wonder he’s not working as a legislative aide any more.
